TUESDAY JANUARY 11, 1983 %u2013 SATURDAY FEBRUARY 5, 1983
An installation- based exhibition conceived by Abram Nitsberg, Jim Renvelh and Alex Rudansky, three Russian-born artists living in New York City. The project, intended as a critique of the idolization of iconic historical figures within the contemporary context, was centered around a revolving conveyor system similar to those used by commercial dry cleaners to store cleaned garments. Cardboard cutouts of blue jeans%u2014ostensibly belonging to these icons of world history%u2014were hung from the conveyor. The project thus served as a metaphor for the cyclical nature of history, while also conflating pop culture with past historical events.
